Kayaking is a great way to explore the local coastline as is perfect for those who want to get on the water, but might not be keen to sail and windsurf

All our resorts that offer watersports have kayaks available to take out free of charge. Our fully qualified instructors will help you carry your kayak to the water and even offer you a few tips and pointers if needed. There is no time limit and you can spend as long as you want out on the water.

Stand-up Paddleboarding

Stand-up Paddleboarding benefits athletes with a strong 'core' workout. SUP'ing is gaining in popularity as celebrities are sampling the sport, and cross-over athletes are training with SUP. Another reason for the rise in popularity of SUP boarding is that, unlike surfing it's very easy to learn. Within one hour you can become very comfortable in the water and on your board.
